Security Cams Feature Request

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

Hello everyone

 

I have recently received some "stick it up battery camera" for use in a building with several residents and they are great. I find that the following characteristics would be very useful:

1. That the options for not sending alerts configured by the owner user are extensive for all guest users (today guests receive alerts all the time)
2. That in the same way you can configure periods and options to not record or show live. (When a camera is installed indoors for private use, it is intrusive that it always records and that guest users can always access)
3. That recording area and alert area can be configured separately (it is interesting for us to record each movement, but to send alerts only if there is any intrusion)
4. That the sensitivity of the sensor has some scale to understand what the adjustment level implies.

 

Thank you! Regards!

Local storeage with cloud syncing. Give us an option to buy some kind of local storage, that will do some video processing and storage, with a cloud sync or backup. A box with a power cable, eithernet port and some kind of raid level. This would do a few things,

It would provide speed locally to users with poor bandwidth that could be synced over time when there is not motion
It would also provide storage during an outage.

It would still protect against the theft of the storage.

it would also protect the consumer when there is communication issues to Ring or system issues.

Ability to disable the blue light.

Low battery notifications in the Ring app for the stick-up cameras.

Or maybe allow IFTTT to gather that info so I can create the notification alert.

Spotlight & doorbell sound/alert

I think it would be helpful and deter people from damaging/stealing if the spotlight and ring alarm actually made an announcement or sound to alert them immediately. Ex: “you are being recorded” or a sound not the siren right away but “you are on camera” this way they know and potentially may walk away.

THIS! They have a motion schedule which only disables alerts. Why not have a recording schedule as well? I want my camera to only record if there is motion and I’m not home(like if a burglar breaks in), not when I’m at home with my kids walking around.

Stick Up Cam...there is a motion schedule. Why not a recording schedule? My camera is in a high traffic area in my home. I only want it recording when I’m not home. When I get home with the kids, I don’t want it recording as it would use a LOT of WiFi data. This camera is in the living room. Only solution I’ve found is to remember to toggle on recording when I leave for work and toggle it off when I get home. I’ve forgotten to toggle it off a few times and it has recorded literally hours. Simple solution is to have recording as an option in the schedule.

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

I would like to be able to have a one-button feature to activate motion notifications on all selected cameras at once and the same feature to deactivate motion notifications on those selected cameras. Something like putting them in a group. Unless I am missing something in the software, I must go from camera to camera and bring up each individual setting to activate or deactivate motion alerts.

You can “snooze” notifications on all cameras at one time. Click on the moon in the top right of the app.

I do agree that having groups like rooms would be helpful. Put my outdoor cameras in a group, etc...

the ability to play a recorded message just before the recording stops, similar to a default voicemail message.  As an example, when I can't get to the phone right away, because I'm not at home/driving, etc..., it would be nice to inform the person at the door "sorry I can't come to the door right now"...  However, if I take control of the camera before the recording ends, then don't play the default message (similar to answering the phone).  That way anyone coming to the door will leave after the first 30 second notification.   I would just turn this feature on when I leave home or don't want to be bothered, in effect, putting it in an auto answer mode.
